HD 365 - ArteBa, Buenos Aires
Madeline Hollander’s site-specific work, 365, is a durational performance created for the exhibition “Los Derivados” and is composed of movement sequences that connect cement mixing trucks, performers, and pedestrians. Each cement truck rotates 365 times, representing 1 earth year, while six performers repeat 12-step movement sequences, representing the months of the year, that draw choreographic inspiration from both cultural and mechanized modes of counting, measuring and keeping time.In this piece, the sidewalk both unites and inverts the roles of the performers and the pedestrians. Concrete, the most widely used material in the world, becomes the stage. The two essential elements in concrete, sand and water, are now considered endangered natural resources.365 is performed by Julián Dubié, Flor sanchez Elia, Madeline Hollander, Tomas Kuselman, Tomás Deías Spreng, Fenomix, Shap S.A., and NOREP.Costumes by Dubie.Special thanks to Fenomix, Shap S.A., and NOREP for their participation and generous support.
